[Music} The bunk room is such a great use of a small space. It's a very narrow room But it has this unique feature, a big bank of windows set into the alcove under the roof. Its a great space to put overflow children, if you have extra kids staying in the house. Suzanne covered each twin bed with fabric that's been made into a slipcover. So it's actually almost like a fitted sheet that fits directly over the mattresses and then can be taken off and made up as a bed. There's a great mix of prints in this room on the pillows. There's a nice polka dot pillow, a solid cream, a solid orange and then a beautiful striped that ties all the colors together. [MUSIC] Suzanne also used that strip as the Roman shade on the windows. And the day bed cover is actually piped in orange, which adds just a tiny pop of color and contrast on the edge. [MUSIC] There's a pair of side tables in this room so that each bed has a little bit of the bed side table and they're really beautiful warmed wood finish and top by a collection of gloves. This is a signature of Susan's and it's always something fun that she includes in all of her projects In a space as tight as this, there's not a lot of room for standing lamps and floor lamps. So, Suzanne tucked in a light by putting sconces over each bed. There's a narrow space in front of the window that Suzanne and Ken utilized and turned into just another surface to place lamps. There's a pair of really pretty sculptural lamps there with a round base. And again, it just echoes the shape of the globes that are used to accessorize the room. The bunk room upstairs is a tiny comfortable space that packs a big punch. [BLANK_AUDIO]
